Banana Nut Protein Bars

Here is a quick (10 min prep & 10 min cook time)

Recipe:

½ Cup Banana (very ripe)

2 Whole Omega-3 Eggs

¼ Cup Cottage Cheese

½ Cup Rolled Oats

2 Cups Walnut Meal

6 Scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (Vega is my recommendation)

¼ tsp Baking Soda

1/8 tsp Salt

Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk eggs and then combine cottage cheese and banana. Combine oats, walnut meal, protein powder, baking soda and salt and stir until evenly mixed. Slowly add egg/banana mix to the dry ingredients until incorporated.  Lightly coat a 9x9 inch pan with spray and then transfer mixture into the pan. Bake 10-15 minutes (or until tooth pick comes out clean). Be careful not to over-bake as the squares will dry out. Cool, portion and store in the fridge or freezer, individually wrapped.
